Last Saturday, the meeting between Catalan Dragons and HALKR set a record in the crowd on Sky Sports, “The strongest in 15 years for a match in the regular stage” can be read in a Premier League press release. According to the numbers reported, the match recorded an average Sky-Sports audience of 288,000, peaked at 446,000 in overtime and James Maloney’s relegation (29-28 win from Dragons).
This meeting, which was broadcast in France on beIN SPORTS and in the UK on Sky Sports, broke records. The six matches on the first day of the Premier League achieved a record audience of 1.33 million viewers over the six matches, according to Sky Sports.
“I am delighted to see that the audience record has fallen in the regular stage match on SkySports. It is an exceptional offer for our institutional partners, the city of Perpignan, the circuit of the Pyrenees Orientale and the Occitanie region as well as its brand Sud de France.” President Bernard Gwache responded.
On Saturday, the Huddersfield vs Catalonia Dragons match (3:30 PM) will be broadcast live again on Sky-Sports and on beIN which will pick up the signal.
